With the Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers advancing to the Divisional Round of the AFC Playoffs last night, the time has come for the NFC to take center stage. Today, both NFC Wild-Card games take place, each featuring a team from the NFC North division.

In the early game, the Seahawks and Vikings battle in a rematch of a week 13 game. In that contest. Seattle blew the doors off TCF Bank Stadium with a 38-7 victory, during which they held the Vikings to just 125 yards of total offense.

The afternoon game finds our Green Bay Packers in Washington, a place they have not played since the 2010 season. In that game, Washington won by a field goal, but in the most recent meeting between the teams (in 2013 at Lambeau Field), the Packers racked up 580 yards of offense en route to a 38-20 victory.

Join us all day long as we discuss the goings-on from both games across the NFC.
